  • Seriously, there is nothing as comforting as waking up next to my husband every morning. Or hearing the laugh of my children, especially when they are playing together. They are 7 and 17 months, and surprisingly enough, they spend more time playing together than they do apart. Those are good. Or a homemade dinner with everyone around the table. Between work, custody arrangements, baseball, and summer camp, that is a rarity in this house.

  • The smile on my childs fae when they get up in the morning, the smell of fresh cut grass, a beautiful sunset, blooming flowers, and most of all the sound of my girls giggling in their room.

  • My first cup of coffee in the morning, watching the birds in my yard, catching green lights on the way to work, catching my kids doing something absolutely adorable and then looking for DH to get him to see only to find he's already watching and we share a smile. Laughing with DH. Hugs from my kids, nights when they miraculously get to sleep early without a fight. I'd say that last one is my favorite =)

    A few years ago I got so sick and tired of listening to myself complain that I just stopped. I started being thankful instead. As soon as something gets me down I think about how absolutely fabulous I have it, 2 healthy kids, a good marriage, a roof over our heads, food on the table...what is there to complain about??

  • When people still have the compassion to open the door for someone else. I was at the store the other day and watched as some guy in his early 20's just let the door shut when an elderly lady was right behind him. My 6 yr old son ran ahead of us in order to get to the door in time to hold it open for her(without being prompted).

  • The smile on my ds face when he is just about to fall asleep in my arms. All the little things that my 3 boys do that show that they really do love each other.

  • All the little things in life are my biggest everything to me. I respect life, nature, art, and all the beauty it offers.

  • The other day we were at my son baseball game, and this couple placed their chairs right in our line of sight. We didn't say anything, but their daughter, maybe 5 or 6, turned around and said "Guys, we just sat down right in their way." So they moved their chairs back about a foot. I was so impressed. People just don't do that enough anymore. So consideration of other people is a good one too.

  • the feeling after you acomplished somethings, the breeze on my face on a hot summer night, wind through my hair when I'm driving, family time and no one yelling or screaming, seeing people help each other, when my hubby gets home from work and we are all together, and I love life itself
